Stayed in January 2017 and our hosts Rhys & Jenna are lovely people and made our stay even more memorable. Although a little way from the action of Hirafu, the bus stop is straight outside. Rooms are basic but more than adequate. Just some more hanging space in the rooms would be nice, as well as a bigger fridge in...

Alpine Central is a fantastic lodge and we really enjoyed our stay. The hosts, Jenna, Rhys and Christy could not have been more helpful, welcoming and friendly, and seemed to effortlessly make everyone feel at home. Other highlights included the delicious breakfast, free-flow tea and hot chocolate, comfortable communal area, easy access ski and boot room, and convenient location. Our...

I liked a lot that everything was well organized and properly maintained here: the room for skis, boots and drying jackets, gloves etc. was in order and dried the gear well. Moreover, breakfast was served every morning and was always on time or even earlier than 07:30. Our room was clean and us three Finnish guys slept well there after...

Located at Izumikyo 2, this lodge is not exactly walking distance to Gondola but busstop 24 is right at the door step. Shuttle bus to Gondola or Welcome Centre runs regularly at intervals. There is also a bus to Hanazono from the same busstop. The hosts Rhys and Jenna (Aussies) are chatty, friendly and helpful. They keep the place really...

We stayed for 4 nights in a twin room in mid-December. The lodge is in a convenient location, only a 15 minute walk or short shuttle bus ride to Grand Hirafu. The bus is free and departs frequently from right outside the lodge. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the common area was a nice place to relax and...

Was there with six other family members in mid Dec. The place was wonderful; sufficiently furnished to make us feel at home in a foreign land. On top of that, their service was also impeccable. Not only were Jenna and Rhyse patient and helpful, they noticed your needs and made initiative to offer help. Overall an extremely enjoyable stay and...

Strongly recommend for following reasons: 1. Jenna and Rhys are the best hosts we even met in our Niseko trip! They were patient,available to help, and crystal-clear explained everything you need to know about having good time (ski or only relax) in Hirafu. trust me, having a nice/helpful host is key to have a comfortable lodge stay experience. 2. convenient....

I had a really nice time to staying there. I was staying there alone for business. But people who were working at the lodge, they were always talked to me and helped me so I wasn't feel alone. Thank you very much for your hospitality, especially Jenna and Rhys! Kaori

March 9-14, 2016 Maddie picked us up in a van from the Hirafu Welcome Center. The pictures on the internet do not do Alpine Central justice. We came at the tail-end of the Season. Free hot chocolate and coffee were good but March bookings no longer come with breakfast. Maddie and Liam are laid back and most helpful. Free laundry...
